Nataly Olivia A Canales

PhD Fellow in Evolutionary Genomics, Natural History Museum of Denmark, University of Copenhagen

My research focuses on trait evolution to understand the evolutionary processes and biodiversity patterns in medicinal species, scientifically supporting traditional knowledge, to ultimately improve health. To achieve this, I work with museum collections and modern samples using phylogenomic and chromatographic approaches.
Currently, I am a Marie Skłodowska-Curie PhD fellow in the Natural History Museum of Denmark and an early stage researcher in the Plant.ID project.
I graduated as BSc. Genetics and Biotechnology in UNMSM (Peru) and as MSc. Bionformatics in FAFU (China).
